3. Oil the 2 bearings.
4. Don't use very high discharge batteries
The above gives about 2Kg of thrust. The important thing is to find and configure the right ESC. Slightly more thrust than the 2300kv on 5S.
A different ESC or high timing may push that amps towards the 70 mark and thrust to around 2.2-2.3 but it gets hot.
Hows the heat coming off the motor, any changes in winding brightness?
TIA for any input
